"Get Alarmed, TN!" is a grant-funded fire safety education and smoke alarm installation program administered by the State Fire Marshal's Office (SFMO). Launched in November 2012, the program distributes fire safety education and 10-year sealed battery smoke alarms to participating fire departments. The fire departments then deliver the education and install smoke alarms in at-risk homes across the state.

Close the Door

A closed door is one of the best pieces of firefighting and lifesaving equipment. It can:

  • Reduce fire growth and spread
  • Limit damage to your home
  • Possibly save lives

If you have to leave a room that is on fire, simply closing the door behind you can be the best decision you make.


  • Close the bedroom door when sleeping, if possible.
  • Close doors behind you when escaping a room or building that's on fire.
  • Keep fire doors closed. Never wedge, disable or prop open fire doors in any building.
